Pixie 2010 Photo of the Year

Following on from last year's Photo of the Year we have once again selected what we feel are the top 50 photos uploaded to Pixie in 2010. This year we also asked you to nominate your favourites and these votes have been taken into account.

The selection process this year has taken a lot longer than last year as the number of images upload has increased substantially. It's incredibly difficult to choose just 50, but somehow we've managed to do it!

Photo of the Year 2010

Congratulations to Adrian Sadlier for his photo "Evil at the Heart of Beauty" which wins the Pixie Photo of the Year 2010.

# by BuzzLightyear on on 2011-Jan-02

A lot of really wonderful images in there. Congratulations to everyone on getting into the top 50, and a big thank you to Marcus & Co. for allowing us to share our images with this wonderful community called pix.ie :-)


# by Adrian on on 2011-Jan-02

This is a great collection of work by some really talented togs. I'm genuinely awestruck and humbled that one of my shots was chosen as POTY (and that I got a top 50 as well!). There are so many other shots that didn't make the list that equally deserve recognition - it would be great to extend it to a top 100 for next year.

Thanks to Marcus and his crew for affording us the opportunity to share each others interpretation of the world we see. Long may it continue and thrive.

And with a special apology to James for the pun - A Snappy New Year to us all :-)


# by yarglags on on 2011-Jan-02

Wow! Some great images here. As I scrolled down I saw some incredible pictures that I had seen before and some more that I had somehow missed. Congratulations to all mentioned.


# by EoghanMac on on 2011-Jan-04

Looking forward to another year of the same !
